‘Deaf in dance: feeling the beat’

‘Deaf in dance: feeling the beat’ is a daily free showcase running at State Library of Queensland from  May 25 2024 – March 16 2025.

Experience the vibrant and rhythmically charged world of the Deaf Indigenous Dance Group (DIDG), where the art of movement becomes a powerful expression of culture, identity, and resilience.

The showcase features artworks, performances and digital stories, together with a collection of narrative portraits of the group from award-winning photojournalist Sean Davey.

As a proud Deaf First Nations dance troupe, DIDG are nationally renowned for their stunning dance talent and perform regularly at cultural and arts events around the country. Spanning over 27 years of community impact and engagement, DIDG is a testament to the universal language of dance.

The showcase has been created with a focus on accessible design and resources, with Australian Sign Language (Auslan) tours and video content, audio descriptions and a custom tactile artwork that visitors can feel and touch they move through the exhibition.

‘Deaf in dance: feeling the beat’ shines a spotlight on the talent and accomplishments of DIDG.
